POY is Australia’s largest independent consumer-voted award for product innovation. A POY award highlights to consumers the best and most innovative products in each of the 42 categories. This year over 16,000 household consumers were surveyed to determine the winners.
Nicole Norton, Product Manager for Cooking, Sunbeam, said: “We are delighted that Sunbeam Duos™, the unique Slow Cooker and Sous Vide has been recognised and awarded for its leading innovation by Product of the Year.”
“Sunbeam created the Sunbeam Duos™ as a Slow Cooker and a Sous Vide in one. Common in restaurants for decades, sous vide appliances have not been accessible in the domestic market, so most home cooks have not been able to use one. By incorporating both cooking methods, Sunbeam Duos™ priced at $199 is an easy and affordable option for home chefs that want to experiment and cook using the Sous Vide style but who also want to ensure regular use by using it as a Slow Cooker.” added Nicole.
The Sunbeam Duos™ features of 5.5L capacity, Sous Vide temperature setting from 40°C to 90°C, Slow Cooker temperature setting of High and Low, automatic keep warm setting and handy countdown timer can be attributed to the success in winning POY 2014.
Sous Vide style cooking has been a mainstay in the restaurant industry for decades as this method produces tender, succulent meals to perfection every time without overcooking. However, they have been out of reach for households until the award winning Sunbeam Duos™, which has allowed families an accessible, affordable and high quality appliance for the home.
